The Soraya Sarah Nazarian Fine Arts Pavilion was established thanks to generous support by the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Family Foundation. The Foundation supports the Soraya Sarah Nazarian Program in Fine Arts through the Whizin Center for Continuing Education, upholding American Jewish University’s legacy of supporting the fine arts. The program envisions a bold and robust arts and culture center that bridges individuals and communities through the power of art and enables them to better understand their identities and their role in the world.

On August 5, 2021 we were pleased to dedicate the opening of the Pavilion and welcomed the community to AJU in celebration of this momentous occasion.
